|Welcome to Las Vegas!|
We weren't planning on having a whole weekend there, mostly because of me being slammed with school work and that pesky thesis. That Thursday before we left, I submitted my thesis to my adviser for review, I was ready to have a nice, stress-free weekend!
When staying in Las Vegas, you pretty much will expect resort and casino fees. Since we were only staying there one night, and it was just the two of us, I decided to get an Airbnb room for only $61. The lady who owned it was super nice, and very responsive. Unfortunately, she was out of town that night, so we didn't get to meet her.

Anyways, Brandon and I first stopped at Boulder City to grab dinner before the concert. Boulder City has a very cute downtown scene, and a nice brewery! We had dinner at the Boulder Dam Brewery for a beverage and a sandwich. We sat outside, and the weather was perfect.
Afterwards, we drove up 25 more minutes to be in Las Vegas. We did the "Welcome" sign, sat and watched airplanes land and take off at McCarren, then finally made our way to the MGM Grand.
Overall, Las Vegas was very interesting. We put $2 in slot machines and lost $2. Perhaps we'll go back sometime when we aren't so rushed.
